COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2016/200

of 15 February 2016

laying down implementing technical standards with regard to disclosure of the leverage ratio for institutions, according to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on prudential requirements for credit institutions and investment firms and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (1), and in particular the third subparagraph of Article 451(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The objective of uniform disclosure templates is to help improve transparency and comparability of leverage ratio figures. Therefore, rules for disclosure of the leverage ratio by institutions supervised under Directive 2013/36/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (2) should be consistent with international standards as reflected in the Revised Basel III leverage ratio framework and disclosure requirements of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) adapted to take into account the Union regulatory framework and its specificities, as laid down in Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

(2)

For the same reasons of improving transparency and comparability of leverage ratio figures, it is appropriate that one of the templates for the disclosure of the leverage ratio provides a breakdown of leverage ratio total exposure measure sufficiently granular to identify the main composition of the leverage ratio, as well as the on-balance sheet exposure, which is usually the biggest part of the leverage ratio total exposure measure.

(3)

Article 429(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, as amended by Regulation (EU) 2015/62 (3), no longer requires the calculation of the leverage ratio as the simple arithmetic mean of the monthly leverage ratios over a quarter but only requires a calculation as at the end of the quarter. As a result, there should no longer be any need for competent authorities to provide the permission to calculate the end-of-quarter leverage ratio referred to in Article 499(3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Therefore, the uniform disclosure templates for the disclosure of the leverage ratio no longer need to include any specification about how the institution applies Article 499(3).

(4)

Where, in accordance with the second subparagraph of Article 13(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions have the obligation to disclose any information on the leverage ratio at sub-consolidated level and in order to keep the administrative burden proportionate to the objectives of the rules on leverage ratio disclosure, rules on the leverage ratio disclosure should not require those institutions to complete and publish the template entitled ‘LRSpl’ at sub-consolidated level. This disclosure template is required to be completed and published at the consolidated level and its publication at sub-consolidated level would not provide any considerable added value, given that further breakdown of the total exposure measure for the sub-consolidated level is already provided via the completion of the template entitled ‘LRCom’. Furthermore, publication of the LRSpl template could add considerable burden on institutions as they cannot easily derive such a template from the respective supervisory reporting framework, which is not applicable at sub-consolidated level.

(5)

The scope of consolidation and the valuation methods for accounting purposes and for regulatory purposes can be different, and this results in differences between the information used in the calculation of the leverage ratio and the information used in the published financial statements. In order to reflect this discrepancy, it is also necessary to disclose the difference between the values in the financial statements and the values under the regulatory scope of consolidation of elements in the financial statements that are used to calculate the leverage ratio. Therefore, a reconciliation between the two should also be presented in a template.

(6)

To facilitate comparability of the information disclosed, a uniform template and detailed instructions should also be provided for the description and disclosure of processes used to manage the risk of excessive leverage, and factors that had an impact on the leverage ratio during the period to which the disclosed leverage ratio refers.

(7)

Article 451(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 started to apply from 1 January 2015. To ensure that the obligation to disclose the information related to the leverage ratio is carried out by institutions in an effective and harmonised manner across the Union the soonest possible, it is necessary to require that institutions use the templates for disclosure of such information at the earliest possible date.

(8)

This Regulation is based on the draft implementing technical standards submitted by the European Banking Authority to the European Commission.

(9)

The European Banking Authority has conducted open public consultations on the draft implementing technical standards on which this Regulation is based, analysed the potential related costs and benefits and requested the opinion of the Banking Stakeholder Group established in accordance with Article 37 of Regulation (EU) No 1093/2010 of the European Parliament and of the Council (4),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

Disclosure of the leverage ratio and application of Article 499(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the relevant information regarding the leverage ratio and the application of Article 499(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, as referred to in point (a) of Article 451(1) of that Regulation, by completing and publishing rows 22 and EU-23 of the template entitled ‘LRCom’ set out in Annex I in accordance with the instructions set out in Annex II.

Article 2

Change of the decision on which leverage ratio to disclose

1.   Where, in accordance with Article 499(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions change their choice of leverage ratio to be disclosed, they shall disclose the reconciliation of the information on all leverage ratios disclosed up to the moment of that change by completing and publishing the templates entitled ‘LRSum’, ‘LRCom’, ‘LRSpl’ and ‘LRQua’ set out in Annex I for each of the reference dates corresponding to the leverage ratios disclosed up to the moment of the change.

2.   Institutions shall disclose the items referred to in paragraph 1 in the first disclosure that occurs after the change of choice of leverage ratio.

Article 3

Breakdown of the leverage ratio total exposure measure

1.   Institutions shall disclose the breakdown of the leverage ratio total exposure measure, as referred to in point (b) of Article 451(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, by completing and publishing both of the following:

Article 4

Reconciliation of leverage ratio to published financial statements

1.   Institutions shall disclose the reconciliation of the leverage ratio total exposure measure to the relevant information in published financial statements, as referred to in point (b) of Article 451(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, by completing and publishing the template entitled ‘LRSum’ set out in Annex I in accordance with the instructions set out in Annex II.

2.   Where institutions do not publish financial statements at the level of application referred to in paragraph 6 of Part 1 of Annex II they shall not be required to complete and publish the template entitled ‘LRSum’ set out in Annex I.

Article 5

Institutions shall disclose the total assets as published in their financial statements under the applicable accounting framework as defined in Article 4(1)(77) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

{2}

Adjustment for entities which are consolidated for accounting purposes but are outside the scope of regulatory consolidation

Institutions shall disclose the difference in value between the leverage ratio exposure as disclosed in {LRSum;8} and total accounting assets as disclosed in {LRSum;1} that results from differences between the accounting scope of consolidation and the regulatory scope of consolidation.

If this adjustment leads to an increase in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a negative amount.

{3}

(Adjustment for fiduciary assets recognised on the balance sheet pursuant to the applicable accounting framework but excluded from the leverage ratio total exposure measure in accordance with Article 429(13) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013)

Institutions shall disclose the amount of derecognised fiduciary items in accordance with Article 429(13) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

As this adjustment reduces the total leverage ratio total exposure measure, institutions shall place the value disclosed in this row between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

{4}

Adjustment for derivative financial instruments

For credit derivatives and contracts listed in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions shall disclose the difference in value between the accounting value of the derivatives recognised as assets and the leverage ratio exposure value as determined by application of Article 429(4)(b), Article 429(9) in conjunction with Article 429a, 429(11)(a) and (b) and 429(12) and of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

If this adjustment leads to an increase in exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, institutions shall place this amount between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

{5}

Adjustment for securities financing transactions (SFTs)

For SFTs institutions shall disclose the difference in value between the accounting value of the SFTs recognised as assets and the leverage ratio exposure value as determined by application of Article 429(4)(a) and (c) in conjunction with Article 429b, Articles 429(5)(c) and (d), 429 (8), and 429 (11)(c)-(f) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

If this adjustment leads to an increase in the exposure, institutions shall disclose this as a positive amount. If this adjustment leads to a decrease in exposure, institutions shall place this amount between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

{6}

Adjustment for off-balance sheet items (i.e. conversion to credit equivalent amounts of off-balance sheet exposures)

Institutions shall disclose the difference in value between the leverage ratio exposure as disclosed in {LRSum;8} and total accounting assets as disclosed in {LRSum;1} that results from the inclusion of off-balance sheet items in the leverage ratio total exposure measure.

As this adjustment increases the leverage ratio total exposure measure, it shall be disclosed as a positive amount.

{EU-6a}

(Adjustment for exempted intragroup exposures excluded from the leverage ratio total exposure measure in accordance with Article 429(7) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013)

Articles 429(7), 113(6) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the on balance sheet portion of exposures excluded from the leverage ratio total exposure measure in accordance with 429(7) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 provided that all the conditions set out in points (a) to (e) of Article 113(6) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 are met and where the competent authorities have given their approval.

As this adjustment reduces the leverage ratio total exposure measure, institutions shall place the value disclosed in this row between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

(Adjustment for exposures excluded from the leverage ratio total exposure measure in accordance with Article 429(14) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013)

Article 429(14) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the on balance sheet portion of exposures excluded from the leverage ratio total exposure measure in accordance with Article 429(14) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 subject to the therein stated conditions being met and where the competent authorities have given their approval.

As this adjustment reduces the leverage ratio total exposure measure, institutions shall place the values disclosed in this row between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

{7}

Other adjustments

Institutions shall include any remaining difference in value between the leverage ratio exposure as disclosed in {LRSum;8} and total accounting assets as disclosed in {LRSum;1} that is not included in {LRSum;2}, {LRSum;3}, {LRSum;4}, {LRSum;5}, {LRSum;6}, {LRSum;EU-6a}, or {LRSum;EU-6b}. This may include, for example, the asset amounts that are deducted from Tier 1 capital and that are therefore subtracted from the leverage ratio total exposure measure as per {LRCom;2}

If these adjustments lead to an increase in the exposure, institutions shall report this as a positive amount. If these adjustments lead to a decrease in exposure, the institutions shall place this amount between brackets (which signifies a negative amount).

Legal references and instructions

{1}

On-balance sheet items (excluding derivatives, SFTs and fiduciary assets, but including collateral)

Article 429 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose all assets other than contracts listed in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, credit derivatives, SFTs and fiduciary assets in accordance with Article 429(13) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Institutions shall base the valuation of these assets on the principles set out in Article 429(5) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

Institutions shall include in this cell cash received or any security that is provided to a counterparty via SFTs and that is retained on the balance sheet (i.e. the accounting criteria for derecognition under the applicable accounting framework are not met).

{2}

(Asset amounts deducted in determining Tier 1 capital)

Article 429(4)(a) and Article 499(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the amount of regulatory value adjustments made to Tier 1amounts in accordance with the choice made pursuant to Article 499(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, as disclosed in {LRCom;EU-23}.

More specifically, institutions shall disclose the value of the sum of all the adjustments that target the value of an asset and which are required by:

Articles 32 to 35 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, or

Articles 36 to 47 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, or

Articles 56 to 60 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013,

as applicable.

Where the choice to disclose Tier 1 capital is made in accordance with Article 499(1)(a) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions shall take into account the exemptions, alternatives and waivers to such deductions laid down in Articles 48, 49 and 79 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, without taking into account the derogation laid down in Chapters 1 and 2 of Title I of Part Ten of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. In contrast, where the choice to disclose Tier 1 capital is made in accordance with Article 499(1)(b) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions shall take into account exemptions, alternatives and waivers to such deductions laid down in Articles 48, 49 and 79 of REGULATION (EU) No 575/2013, in addition to taking into account the derogations laid down in Chapter 1 and 2 of Title I of Part Ten of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

To avoid double counting, institutions shall not report adjustments already applied pursuant to Article 111 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 when calculating the exposure value in rows 1, 4 and, 12 nor shall they report any adjustment that does not deduct the value of a specific asset.

Since it reduces the leverage ratio total exposure measure institutions shall place the value in this cell between brackets (which signifies that it shall contribute negatively to the sum to be disclosed in {LRCom;3}).

{3}

Total on-balance sheet exposures (excluding derivatives, SFTs and fiduciary assets) (sum of lines 1 and 2)

The sum of {LRCom;1} and {LRCom;2}. Institutions shall take into account that {LRCom;2} contributes negatively to this sum.

{4}

Replacement cost associated with all derivatives transactions (i.e. net of eligible cash variation margin)

Articles 274, 295, 296, 297, 298, 429a and 429a(3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the current replacement cost as specified in Article 274(1) of contracts listed in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and credit derivatives including those that are off-balance sheet. These replacement costs shall be net of eligible cash variation margin in accordance with Article 429a(3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 whereas any cash variation margin received on an exempted CCP leg in accordance with Article 429(11) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 shall not be included.

As determined by Article 429a(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013, institutions may take into account the effects of contracts for novation and other netting agreements in accordance with Article 295 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013. Cross-product netting shall not apply. However, institutions may net within the product category referred to in point (25)(c) of Article 272 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and credit derivatives when they are subject to a contractual cross-product netting agreement referred to in Article 295(c) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

Institutions shall include all credit derivatives, not solely those in the trading book.

Institutions shall not include in this cell contracts measured by application of the Original Exposure Method in accordance with Articles 429a(8) and 275 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.

{5}

Add-on amount for PFE associated with all derivatives transactions (mark-to-market method)

Articles 274, 295, 296, 297, 298, 299 (2) and 429a of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013

Institutions shall disclose the add-on for the potential future exposure of contracts listed in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and of credit derivatives including those that are off-balance sheet calculated in accordance with the Mark-to-market Method (Article 274 of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 for contracts listed in Annex II of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 and Article 299(2) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013 for credit derivatives) and applying netting rules in accordance with Article 429a(1) of Regulation (EU) No 575/2013.
